Blessings to y'all in Jesus mighty name.

I want to bring you the words of wisdom. Stay blessed.

Proverbs 22:1-13
[1]Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold.
[2]The rich and poor have this in common: The lord made them both.
[3]A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.
[4]True humility and fear of the lord lead to riches, honor, and long life.
[5]Corrupt people walk a thorny, treacherous road; whoever values life will avoid it.
[6]Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
[7]Just as the rich rule the poor, so the borrower is servant to the lender.
[8]Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster, and their reign of terror will come to an end.
[9]Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor.
[10]Throw out the mocker, and fighting goes, too. Quarrels and insults will disappear.
[11]Whoever loves a pure heart and gracious speech will have the king as a friend.
[12]The lord preserves those with knowledge, but he ruins the plans of the treacherous.
[13]The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!”
